Ruff Ruff! My name is Josh
|Breed:||Labrador Retriever/Black Mouth Cur Mix||Color:||Tan/Yellow/Fawn||Age:||Puppy|
|Size:||Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)||Sex:||Male|
I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Josh is 6 months old (5/2013) - 43 lbs. - neutered, current on all shots, and HW negative. He plays well with larger dogs and does well with cats and children too. He is not aggressive with smaller dogs, just a little dominant and could use some one-on-one training. Josh was part of a litter of 14 puppies that were living outside in a nice man's yard in the 5th. They all had ringworm, but have been receiving treatment and are doing much better. Josh is completely healed of the fungus and all of his hair has grown back, so he is ready for adoption. If you, or someone you know, is interested in fostering or adopting Josh, please fill out the app on our website (http://forgottendogs.org) or give their foster mom, Lyda, a call at 713-416-2118.

Rescue Group Info...
We rescue in a low income area of Houston called the 5th Ward. We founded Forgotten Dogs of the 5th Ward Project about a year ago to address what we saw as an obvious need to help the many stray dogs we were seeing in there. We set up feeding stations and network and pull as many as we can when a foster home or no-kill rescue group says they can take them in. One of our goals is education and we provide residents with vouchers that cover the complete cost of having their animals altered and vaccinated against rabies. In addition, we provide other vaccinations and worming in the field free of charge. Since November 2011 we have grown in size and have rescued over 250 dogs and a few cats from the area. We are launching a program called Habitat for Hounds through which we will donate doghouses and blankets to residents for their dogs that are kept outside. Our website is forgottendogs.org and we are a 501c3.
We do not have a regular adoption site at this time, but stay tuned to our facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/ForgottenDogs5) for our upcoming events!
Our adoption fee ranges from $100 to $150. We have an online application and a contract and all dogs/puppies are either spayed/neutered prior to adoption if old enough or arrangements are made to have them spayed/neutered afterwards.
